“No frills - be clear what you're buying, and you'd be happy like I was!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I stayed at Oasis Guest House for 1 night en-route to another location, and was very pleased at what I got for the price. The room was basic and not terribly spacious --> not a problem for me; the whole point of travelling is to spend as little time in the room as possible. Location is *excellent* whether you're after shopping, restaurants, or easy transport options to elsewhere in Boston.

To be clear, you're not getting a lot, but you wouldn't have paid for a lot either.

Pros: Very close to downtown (~10 min walk) and close to everything, yet tucked away just enough in a side street to be insulated from any noise without causing much inconvenience. The continental breakfast supplied was basic, but quite sufficient and pretty good for the price. Service person on duty was very helpful, with a more personal touch than many large hotel chains.

Cons: The one I should point out is that there are no elevators --> something visitors travelling as a family with multiple large pieces of baggage really want to be aware of. It's also a little old (but see title of review!)

I liked it and would happily return to stay if ever I'm in Boston again!

Room Tip: Some floors have a balcony, which is used by smokers. You might want to request a room away from the...

My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience at this guesthouse! We stayed in Boston a total of 5 nights and could not be happier with our experience at Oasis. It is a quaint little guesthouse on a quiet side street -- luckily my fiancé had lived in Back Bay for a while so he knew the area and finding it was no problem. Keith at the front desk was so helpful and wonderful. The free breakfast was great. Rooms are small and simple and there are no elevators, so beware if you travel with a lot of luggage or have trouble with stairs. Everything was clean and kept in nice shape. We loved it, and it was economical for Back Bay. I would recommend this place to everyone!!!

Room Tip: You can choose rooms with private bathroom OR a shared bathroom to save some money!

First, this place is perfect for its location, ease of use, cleanliness and staff. We came into Boston for a Sox game, and it's a short walk from here to Fenway, the shops on Newbury, bars, restaurants, everything. And the price is far, far less than what you'd pay nearby. Just come with a sense of humor. The room we had was itty, itty bitty. The twin bed barely fit, and the bathroom is in the hall, shared. No worries if you're in town to have fun, sack out and get back out there. But if you're coming for business and want a workspace or something ... this isn't you. Also, no elevator, so if you have trouble with stairs, say so when reserving. Also, we came without a car, but if you do come with a car, parking is going to be a challenge. Take the T, the green line is very close and connects to everything.

Great location convenient to Boylston/Newbury Streets and a nice park on the Charles River, continental breakfast included with stay, close to public transportation (the T green and orange lines). Staff was responsive and helpful in email communications. For Boston, cheaper than other hotels in the surrounding area. Hotel attempts to be "green" through its selection of certain products, which is appreciated.

Something is seriously wrong with the plumbing: flushing the toilet causes the bathroom to groan and shake as the water pump physically strains to refill. This can be heard coming from adjacent rooms as well. While eating breakfast on the first floor, the sound literally sounded like a jackhammer, and could be heard by staff, who didn't seem concerned (so maybe that's normal?).

Showers are extremely tight and I am short, small, and flexible person: for others it could be very uncomfortable, so be warned!

The decor could use some work. Everything is clean, and seems to be going for an "old lady chic" look, but tends towards cluttered bric-a-brac.

Room Tip: We were fine with the stairs, but for anyone who is not as mobile, ask for a room on the ground floo...

Located between 2 Green Line T stops, countless universities, The Symphony, walking distance to Newbury St or Boylston, HOW could the location be any better. Each room I stayed in was cozy and efficient. Great little breakfast each morning like clockwork. Excellent staff (esp. Keith, Steve, Joe, Victor and the rest). A bargain in every aspect!!! The Oasis is the ONLY place I will stay in Boston! That's why everybody knows me :).

Room Tip: Even if they put me in the basement I would be happy here!!! But the rooms run the gamut between sin...

We stayed 3 nights. At first the room seemed small but we easily adapted. The entire building - a completely renovated row house in Back Bay area - was excellently clean and so was our room. If I had one complaint it would be that the shower stall was a little tight but that would be it - and it shouldn't be a deal-breaker. The building is in a clean, quiet neighborhood with limited parking in the back alley. THAT was a squeeze. Oasis is right in the heart of Berklee School of Music's area. We were attending an event at the Sheraton and this place was a 5 minute walk to that hotel, the attached Mall and Convention Center. We saved about $180 for lodging over the 3 days and didn't mind the walk at all. There are fast foods and a less than 3 minutes away and interesting parts of Boston all around to explore. We only met one staff member - Keith - at the desk and he was great. Very calm and well-informed. A very good experience we will probably repeat.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the street may be quieter than rooms overlooking the back alley.

Stayed 2 nights, and it is such great find! Location is ideal for exploring Boston. The staff were very friendly and breakfast was brilliant. Rooms were a bit small, but very clean and had everything you needed. Definitely great place to stay.
